A NORTH-east charity is appealing to members of the public to make good use of their old mobile phones by helping it to raise funds in the New Year.
Aberdeen-based cancer support charity, CLAN, recycles old and unwanted phones and receives money in return.
Susan Crighton, fundraising manager at CLAN, said: “Every year many people get new mobile phones for Christmas and as a result, their old phone gets put in a drawer and forgotten about.
“We are asking people to help us by donating their phones which we can then recycle in order to raise funds which allows us to continue to offer our clients the support they require.
“Of course, it isn’t only mobile phones that can be donated, and if anyone has any unwanted gifts lying around, these can make fantastic raffle prizes which can be distributed throughout the year or sold in the CLAN charity shops.
“The start of the year is the ideal time to rid your home of any unused clutter so everyone benefits.”
Mobile phones can be handed into CLAN House at Caroline Place in Aberdeen or one of CLAN’s city centre charity shops at Rosemount Place or Chapel Street, or at the CLAN shop in Ballater.
CLAN Cancer Support is an independent charity which offers support to anyone affected by cancer. Based in Aberdeen, the charity covers the whole of Grampian, Orkney and Shetland. CLAN is also developing services in the community and now has a presence in Ballater, Inverurie, Peterhead, Stonehaven, Orkney and Shetland.
